Critic Reviews for Ae Fond Kiss ...
A small movie, told in a familiar way, and it fails to draw the big picture it could. But it does provide one unusual, and very striking sketch of two lives in crisis, and one community in transition.November 29, 2004
English-language East-West domestic dramas usually tip the scales in favor of modernity... But A Fond Kiss is equally sympathetic to each side.November 29, 2004 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
Although Loach takes pains to present all sides of the issues he raises, he courageously faces up to the truth about people's lives, which is his abiding strength.November 29, 2004 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
Even at its most rigged, there's always just enough to admire in the Loach model.November 23, 2004
This is believable, intelligent filmmaking. It's just that, considering the makers' pedigree, Ae Fond Kiss... is more of a peck than a smacker.October 6, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
[Loach] manages to reach beyond social debate to touch you on an emotional level.September 19, 2004 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Ae Fond Kiss ...
Jul 19, 2011A modern Romeo and Juliet story directed by Ken Loach. It may be a little soapy sometimes but it is always honest, told with simplicity and raising some solid questions about religious and cultural intolerance.Carlos M Super Reviewer
Nov 11, 2010They speak English in Scotland, but you need subtitles to understand them. I really enjoyed this movie. It explores many aspects of cross-cultural relationships with honesty and without oversimplifying it. Although the main plot deals with a romantic relationship between a non-practicing Catholic and a Muslim, other subplots like the parents-daughter are equally interesting. Well done.Cynthia S Super Reviewer
Mar 08, 2010Ae fond kiss was more than a love story, it really spoke the difficulties from those of different backgrounds and religion when they fell in love. Family, society,careers, were deciding their lives. I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end.It had just the right amounts of humor and romance and drama to make it more enjoyable.Ken Loach showed the subjects of religion, race, and cultural differences in a very sensitive way. The actors had wonderful chemistry, which made the story believable and likable.It was very well acted, and I highly recommended this movie.Daisy M Super Reviewer
